Help me !!!!!!! Treated for thrush but docs didn’t even look?!

Edited , 3 users are following.

what do people think this is? been to doctors and they didnt even look or take swabs yet prescribed me two lots of antibiotics. my discharge is thick and yellow and i have sores all over my vagina i am feeling generally unwell too.

the antibiotics they prescribed me are basic infection relief ones however the other ones "doxy" something or other i googled are commonly used to treat chlamydia!? yet they told me my bloods are fine and just said i had an infection. after looking at my vagina im now worried this is herpes and seeing other peoples photos 😕 dont know whether to go back to doctors as unsure if those antibiotics would help that or not... all i know is that if someone told me that cutting it off would relieve the pain i probably would! lol sorry for the picture! i always try and be safe and i have recently got a new sexual partner after about 3 years. we did use a condom but it split and its sort of gradually flared up since then! image

      ive had the symptoms for a few days however its only got really bad since yesterday but thats when the doctor gave me antibiotics. its took a few weeks to get to this point though just felt a little sore and itchy after sex but it came and went again. my discharge is thick white with a hint of yellow to it and it did itch however its more of a constant sting now more than anything
